Show Me The Money!

Here are two great resources to use when teaching money, courtesy of Mrs. Fleener. has a fun shopping game. In this game you must use the exact amount of coins shown to purchase toys. The Shopping Math game can help students learn how to add and subtract money, which just happens to be a first grade math standard ;). Be careful, sometimes you must buy two or three items to equal the amount shown. If you get the answer correct, the nice cashier gives you a piece of candy.
Georgia Public Broadcasting hosts a First Grade Money Game on their site. In this game you must purchase a food item for the amount indicated. Students will need to recognize coins within a pile of money to play this game. The game requires you to select more coins as you play.
